Church Entry in Spring

"The Mission of St. Gabriel the Archangel Episcopal Church is to share the knowledge and

love of Jesus Christ and to help each other on our spiritual journey with God"

News & Announcements:

Calling all musicians:  Student, amateur or pro, we are looking for people interested in getting together to learn some new music.  Flutes, clarinets, guitars, fiddles of all kinds, harps, dulcimers, oboes, all those and  more are welcome.  We will start by learning music for an instrumental-led service, based on English and American folk tunes.  Please contact Nathan Stoddard at ngstoddard @ gmail.com, or talk to Marlene Mutchler or Mtr. LouAnn.

The 2015 catechumenate class is beginning to take shape.  All interested adults are invited, but we especially welcome folks new to the Episcopal Church who would like to learn more.  Anyone is welcome to participate with us to deepen their current understanding of baptismal and Anglican identity as well. Our sessions culminate with the bishopís biennial visitation to St. Gabrielís in December.  Since the Bishop of our diocese only comes to St. Gabrielís every two years, his visit is a dedicated time for class participants to join the church by baptism, transfer, confirmation, or renewal of baptismal vows if they choose to do so. This more intensive catechumenate class meets weekly on Sundays at St. Gabrielís from May 17 through December 6, with time off in July. Classes will be from noon to 1:30 and include prayer with check-in time, a bible study, a special weekly topic, and closing prayer.  Overall we will touch on Anglican identity and give participants and opportunity to evaluate how they see themselves fit within the comprehensive sweep of Anglicanism. Clergy and lay people from St. Gabrielís will lead most of the weekly topics, which will also illuminate the renunciations and promises made within the baptismal liturgy (BCP 299 ff).  For more information please contact Marlene Mutchler at Adultformation @ stgabrielonline.org.

Youth

Sundays middle and high schoolers 7th-12th grade are invited to the Youth Room (classroom #4)at 9:40 am on most Sunday mornings to Ďcheck iní with youth leaders and each other, then will head to the worship space to sit in the service together or to the library for special discussions and planning. Each Sunday check the white board above the youth bulletin board in the narthex for whatís going on that day for youth group.
